Solar System Scratchpad

[Boiler Plate]

Large scattered disk object, the largest Kuiper Belt Object known at the time of its discovery. At the time, said to have the surface area of Texas. The object categorized as scattered disk object discovered and first to be found that goes that far out (varies from Pluto-like to three times Pluto's distance), in what was thought a no man land, located near its perihelion. Another object was found earlier though, but only later recognized as being in the scattered disk. Probably a dwarf planet according to Mike Brown.
